H.B. Fuller to showcase adhesives for graphic arts – Hall 5 Stand C9A

H.B. Fuller’s high-performance based adhesives for the publishing, printing and packaging industries

At PrintPack India, H.B. Fuller plans to showcase various high-performance based adhesives that aptly fit the challenging needs of the publishing, printing and the packaging industry. With a net revenue of US$ 2.1 billion in FY 2015, H.B. Fuller is a leading adhesive supplier with a focus on sealants and specialty chemical products for critical demands across diverse verticals including electronic and assembly materials, paper converting, automotive and other businesses apart from packaging.

For instance, Optipur Digital adhesive is a reactive hot melt adhesive that has been specifically designed for spine gluing and gluing-off operations, both for soft and hardcover books. Under extreme ambient conditions, its robust yet flexible properties enable high quality reading experience while maintaining its outstanding page pull value across a range of papers, including those that are hard to bind like wood-free, glossy, high weight, matt coated papers amongst others. Often, the quality of packaging suffers, not because of material quality but due to a unique combination of extreme ambient conditions and difficult to bond substrates.

cosmoWithin a few minutes after binding, a correct adhesive delivers a high bond quality and ensures book integrity along the conveyor belt for a quick trim and packing of straight-edged brochures and books. With its technical and R&D centres in the United States and Shanghai, the company has recently set up another R&D centre in Pune, linked to H.B. Fuller’s Lüneburg Adhesive Academy in Germany. Backed by this technology expertise, H.B. Fuller can respond to any local requirement within a given time frame.

H.B. Fuller intends to leverage international trade shows such as PrintPack to demonstrate innovations that are within the reach of local converters, and its team of experts in graphic arts will be present to exchange experience and knowhow with interested visitors.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
